I need to consume dairy, but I’m lactose intolerant

Human beings do not “need” dairy, and there exists NO such thing as “lactose intolerance.”  Human beings are not baby cows and do not need to consume the secretions of other species.

A condition called “lactase persistence;” however, does exist.

“Mammals are born to drink milk…The milk sugar, lactose, is broken down by the enzyme, lactase.  In most cases, mammals stop producing lactase after weaning, but a nucleotide switch in their DNA can keep lactase flowing into adulthood, a trait called lactase persistence.”1

Mother cows who are mammals like human beings produce milk to feed their babies for the sole purpose of their baby calves gaining several hundred pounds.

Human beings normally digest lactose for the first five to seven years of their lives, but most other mammals stop producing lactase much earlier.  Cattle may be weaned from their mothers’ milk at six months to one year of age, and lambs are generally weaned around 16 weeks old.

Humans do not need cows’ milk any more than they need giraffes’ milk or zebras’ blood for a transfusion.  Sadly, baby calves who truly do need their mothers’ milk, are taken from their moms during the first twenty four hours of their lives because humans think they need it more…to drink with butter and egg laden pastries and to eat cheese and ice cream.

The reason that human beings believe they need the milk of another species for calcium, etc. is because they are addicted to it and/or they have been programmed to think they need it by the dairy industry because the meat, fish, dairy and egg industries are the new tobacco industry.  (See Posts entitled, “What is our relationship with nonhuman beings?” “The Correlation between Tobacco and Big Ag” and “Sensory pleasure:  Big Ag (meat, fish, dairy, egg industries) verses Tobacco” herein.)

1“Evolution: It Does a Body Good,” The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), February 26, 2007.

What is our relationship with nonhuman beings?

Most human beings agree that nonhuman beings should be treated humanely, and they should not suffer unnecessarily.  Many human beings share their homes with dogs and cats who they treat like family members.  Many humans get upset when they see someone mistreat a dog or cat, and offer help because they understand the innocent victim is suffering and/or call law enforcement because they understand the mistreatment represents an illegal act.

Ironically, these same people support necessary suffering of nonhuman beings every day because laws protect and justify necessary suffering for human purposes.  Acts that warrant criminal charges when performed by private citizens and would certainly be regarded as torture if they were committed against human beings remain LEGAL as long as there exists a human purpose.

The food, clothing, research and experimentation, and entertainment industries all represent human purposes.  These industries unconscionably, cruelly and violently torture, mutilate and slaughter innocent lives for human purposes.  Although no isolated act of cruelty or violence against a nonhuman being can be condoned or minimized in any way, every single year, human beings support the cruel and violent treatment of approximately 60 billion nonhuman beings who live on land and one trillion nonhuman beings who live in the sea.  (All wars in the history of the world account for the loss of about one billion lives.)

To date, many human beings deny the Truth that is quickly unraveling because they refuse to educate themselves by watching live footage of the inside of factory farms or by visiting a slaughterhouse like the young medical doctor did in the story of The White Cow below.

Mothers cannot imagine what it would be like to have their newborn babies taken away from them.  As a result, they refuse to believe the Truth that standard industry practice separates mothers and babies within the first 24 hours of birth.  There exists a plethora of documentaries, YouTube videos, undercover investigations, interviews, et al. regarding this Traumatic Truth.

Every day, human beings are duped by Big Ag and Big Pharm into believing a ridiculous oxymoron like “humane treatment” exists.  (The definition of humane is “having or showing compassion or benevolence.”)  They believe the marketing and advertising slogans such as farm raised, grass fed and no antibiotics or hormones actually transform toxic substances into healthy foods exactly like they bought the marketing and advertising schemes of commercials of doctors, movie stars, athletes and housewives boasting of toasted, tasty, relaxing, refreshing, fashionable cigarettes from 1941 to 1971.  (See Posts entitled, “The Correlation between Tobacco and Big Ag” and “Sensory pleasure:  Big Ag (meat, fish, dairy, egg industries) verses Tobacco” herein.)

Unfortunately, whether we partake in this holocaust, we all continue to get swindled out of our money (due to the approximate 200% extra cost we all pay ) for the hidden medical and environmental costs of indulging in the flesh, byproducts and secretions of nonhuman beings for sensory pleasure.

Please learn the FACTS, and share the FACTS with others TODAY.  The insightful, informative video below by Lesli Bisgould, Canada’s first Nonhuman Rights Lawyer, was published on May 6, 2014!

The Correlation between Tobacco and Big Ag

Cigarettes have always been linked with relaxation and enjoyment.  In the beginning, only for a few exclusive groups, but in the twentieth century, mass production and modern marketing made cigarettes available to the masses.”

“Before the development of the cigarette manufacturing machine, it was very expensive to make cigarettes so very few people could afford them, and with the development of a machine that would make cigarettes, it brought the cost way down.  The second important development was the development of safety matches so people could light the cigarettes.  And, the third and probably the most important one was the development of modern advertising and public relations which occurred in the 1910s, and the first really big push for cigarettes came in World War I where the tobacco companies arranged for the troops to get free cigarettes.”  Stanton Glanz, Professor, University of California SF

LIKEWISE…

Nonhuman flesh, byproducts and secretions have always been linked with taste and enjoyment.  In the beginning, only for a few exclusive groups, but beginning in the 1970s, mass production as well as marketing and advertising made meat, fish, dairy and eggs available to the masses.”

“Before the development of factory farming, it was very expensive to produce meat, fish, dairy and eggs so very few people could afford them, and with the development of factory farming that would mass produce nonhuman flesh, byproducts and secretions (circa 1970), it brought the cost way down.  The second important development occurred in 1969 when Congress passed the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act (Public Law 91-222) which prohibited cigarette advertising on television and radio, and required the Surgeon General’s label of “Warning:  The Surgeon General Has Determined That Cigarette Smoking is Dangerous to Your Health” on each cigarette package.  And, the third and probably the most important one was the capitalization of marketing and advertising which appealed to sensory pleasure and created addictions to meat, cheese, butter, ice cream, eggs and fast food.”

A Great Way to Start 2020

On Friday, January 3, 2020, a judge ruled that ethical veganism qualifies as a philosophical belief protected under UK law.

It’s nice to know the law is catching up to life.

In Genesis 1:26, the Bible states that God gave humans “dominion over creatures.” Many Hebrew scholars believe the word “dominion” is a very poor translation of the original Hebrew word “v’yirdu” which actually meant “to rule over” as a wise king rules over his subjects with CARE and RESPECT. It implied a sense of RESPONSIBILITY and ENLIGHTENED STEWARDSHIP.

Likewise, Gandhi professed, “Unlike the animal, God has given man the faculty of reason. Ethically they had arrived at the conclusion that man’s supremacy over lower animals meant not that the former should prey upon the latter, but that the higher should PROTECT the lower, and that there should be mutual aid between the two as between man and man. They had also brought out the truth that man eats not for enjoyment but to live.”

Mark Twain concurred. “Of all the creatures, man is the most detestable. Of the entire brood, he’s the one that possesses malice. He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain. The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.”

If God wants us to breed into existence billions of nonhuman beings to enslave, torture and slaughter them (mostly as babies) for sensory pleasure, then what in the world could the Devil possibly want?

If you study religion or philosophy, there exists a common theme of Goodness which implies Compassion, Empathy, Gentleness, Kindness, Peace and the Golden Rule…which supports Veganism; not Violence, Torture and Slaughter.

2019 Recap

New Hope Now and the Nonhuman Rights community made extraordinary progress in 2019.

Last year, I met with Senator Booker’s Counsel, Adam Zipkin, and Lauren Tavar regarding the passage of several Nonhuman Rights bills.  As I suspected, only one, entitled the Compassionate Cosmetics Act, appeared ripe for passage.  (The other drafts remain on hold…but, not for long!)

I also designed this website; created a YouTube channel, and filmed and published several videos; wrote a book and created an online store.

PLEASE KNOW that I remain extremely grateful and blessed for all of YOUR gracious support.  I love being a part of the most important social justice issue of our time, and most importantly acting as a steward for all nonhuman beings.

2020 is going to be a GREAT year!  We are on the brink of freeing them all!

I, personally, have exciting plans as you will soon see.  With respect to advocacy and legislation, it appears President Trump may have opened a doorway for us when he signed PACT, HR 724 on November 25, 2019.  

More good news.

Senator (and Presidential Candidate) Cory Booker introduced the Farm System Reform Act of 2019 which will place a moratorium on CAFOs.

In addition, The Guardian published an article about an ethical veganism/employment discrimination case.  Apparently, Peter Daly, Esquire of the prestigious law firm of Slater Gordon in London will represent Mr. Casamitjana who was terminated by his employer, League Against Cruel Sports, because he advised his colleagues that their employer invested pension monies in companies involved in animal testing.  It appears that the aforementioned lawsuit serves as an opportunity to set a legal precedent with respect to protected classes which has the potential to set the tone for the rest of the world because as you know, most people do not understand that veganism represents a lifestyle and the premise is “ahimsa” which means “nonviolence and reverence for all life” in the Hindu, Buddhist and Jainist traditions.  Accordingly, absolutely yes, veganism does fall under the umbrella of religious discrimination.

How a Plant Based Diet Can Save Our Planet

The greenhouse effect means that atmospheric gases (water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and ozone) sustain life on earth by trapping heat from the sun. These gases allow the sun’s rays to pass through and warm the earth, but prevent the warmth from escaping into space in order to maintain temperatures on earth to sustain life.

The problem is that the rapid increase of greenhouse gases, mainly carbon dioxide and methane, is intensifying this natural greenhouse effect.

For thousands of years, the gases remained balanced and stable because natural processes removed and released about the same amount. The reason the scientists have been concerned over the last couple of decades is that modern human actions such as burning fossil fuels, animal agriculture and deforestation have been increasing and these activities continue to add huge, unnatural quantities of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.

Since the problem is the rapid increase of greenhouse gases, predominantly carbon dioxide and methane, we need to stop the human activities that produce the most of these two gases.

We all agree that countries need to promote policies and invest in new technologies to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, but legislation, innovation and diversification take time.

So, why should we act and what should we do today?

Today’s atmosphere contains more than forty percent more carbon dioxide than it did at the start of the industrial era. Levels of methane and carbon dioxide are the highest they have been in nearly half a million years.

While methane doesn’t stay in the atmosphere as long as carbon dioxide, it is more dangerous to the climate because of how effectively it absorbs heat.

Almost half of livestock emissions are in the form of methane,

about one quarter are from nitrous oxide; and

about one quarter are from carbon dioxide.

Of all the types of greenhouse gases that trap heat in the atmosphere, the two most significant, carbon dioxide and methane, comprise approximately 75% of the greenhouse gas emissions and are produced by factory farming.

Factory farming causes methane levels to skyrocket according to ThinkProgress, “Methane Emissions are Spiking, But It Might Be More Cow Than Car,” March 17, 2016. A study found that agriculture related emissions rather than those from the production or use of fossil fuels, were to blame for the increase of methane in the atmosphere. Scientists concluded that methane from factory farming increased more rapidly than methane produced from extracting fossil fuels.

In fact, factory farming produces more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation industry of the world.

On November 5, 2019, more than 11,000 scientists of the Alliance of World Scientists, confirmed the warning of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization report of 2006 in the findings of a new study published in the journal BioScience entitled, “World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency.” The findings assert that humans created the climate crisis over the past four decades, toxic greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise rapidly, governments remain unsuccessful in solving the crisis, and scientists have “a moral obligation to clearly warn humanity of any catastrophic threat.”

What can we all do today? According to the study, “nations need to promptly reduce emissions of potent pollutants such as methane…researchers say that reducing these short-lived climate pollutants could slow the planet’s short-term warming trend by more than 50 percent over the next few decades.”

The study also says people should “eat mostly plant based food which will improve human health and significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions from livestock…”

The article references the 2018 report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which states, “An immense increase of scale in endeavors to conserve our biosphere is needed to avoid untold suffering due to the climate crisis.”

We can all do our part to protect the planet simply by eliminating factory farming, and not consuming, wearing or using the flesh, skins, fur, feathers, byproducts and secretions of nonhuman beings. We have plenty of viable alternatives available today.

Pacifism can literally save our planet.

Pacifism means nonviolence and creates a higher level of consciousness.

Pacifists live in alignment with the values of Benevolence, Compassion, Empathy, Peace, the Golden Rule, Reverence for all life, Gentleness and Kindness.

How a Plant Based Diet Increases Your Life Expectancy

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, advised, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

A vegan diet contains life force energy.

A major study published in the JAMA Internal Medicine Journal shows that vegans have substantially lower death rates than those who consume meat, dairy and eggs.

Scientists at Harvard’s Mass General Hospital monitored health and diet records of more than 130,000 people over the course of thirty years. They determined that every three percent increase in calories from plant protein reduced the risk of death by ten percent, and reduced the risk of dying from heart disease by 12 percent.

Nonhuman flesh, byproducts and secretions contain high calories, and cholesterol and saturated fat which clog arteries.

Moreover, your body should be a temple. It doesn’t make sense to put dead flesh or toxic byproducts and secretions into a living body.

The factory farms are literally hell on earth. Billions of sweet, innocent living beings who are exactly like your pets at home endure unimaginable pain while they are tortured for their entire lives, and their lifeless bodies remain filled with hormones, antibiotics, blood, feces, bacteria, viruses and pus that cause a myriad of health problems, but the worst part is that you absorb the negative energy of their fear, terror and pain.

If you don’t have to deal with degenerative diseases and chronic conditions because you remain healthy, you won’t cause a premature death due to illness.

In addition, as a healthy individual, you don’t have to take medications which have side effects and a host of other symptoms from drugs.

In contrast, plant based foods are cholesterol free, and high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals which promote and enhance our health and our lives.

Eight Ways a Plant Based Diet Improves Your Sex Life

First, a plant based diet promotes foods like oranges, cacao, sunflower seeds, watermelon, gogi berries and avocados that boost circulation which is a key factor in enhancing sexual function.

Second, when you are healthy, you don’t need to take medications that can lower libido and performance.

Third, a plant based diet unclogs arteries, and better cardiovascular health increases blood flow. A vegan diet eliminates plaque from the arterial walls and increases blood circulation. The more blood flow to a man’s penis, the more likely he will please his partner.

Fourth, a vegan diet will boost your energy level and stamina which results in a higher libido.

Fifth, a plant based diet produces lots of serotonin, the happy hormone.

When you feel happy and maintain positive energy, you want to have sex and your partner wants you.

Sixth, a vegan diet, rich in vitamins, minerals, flavonoids and antioxidants (which counteracts the effects of free radical molecules that cause cell damage and inflammation), gives you a glow and smooth, silky skin with elasticity.

Seventh, you smell fresher and sweeter.

A vegan diet, which is high in vegetables and fruit, keeps your body smelling fresh. Your body odor is significantly more attractive, more pleasant, and less intense than those who consume meat, dairy and eggs.

Apparently, a woman’s vagina can develop a fishy odor which is a consequence of a compound of decay called putrescine, a foul smelling chemical compound that is related to cadaverine, a foul smelling compound related to nonhuman tissue. Both compounds are produced by the breakdown of amino acids in living and dead organisms, and both are toxic in large doses. The two compounds are largely responsible for the foul odor of putrefying flesh, and contribute to bad breath and bacterial vaginosis. They are also found in semen.

Women are more likely to get bacterial vaginosis if they have lower levels of phytonutrients like vitamin C and beta carotene in their bloodstream which indicates a low intake of vegetables and fruit. In addition, a high saturated fat intake increases vaginal pH and also increases the likelihood of getting bacterial vaginosis. Most saturated fat in the United States comes from dairy (cheese, butter, yogurt, milk, ice cream), chicken and desserts.

Finally, your natural lubrication increases.

A vegan diet naturally increases lubrication for women because the high water volume in vegetables and fruit keeps your body hydrated. Vegetables and fruit also hydrate the skin, plump out fine lines and produce a radiant glow. Healthy fats such as flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, nuts and avocados actually nourish and tone your vagina.
